A small but accommodating Italian restaurant. The portions are large, what is really good is their bread. I do not know if they make it in house, but if they buy it, I would ask for their bakery supply :). The portions are generous, however the food was good but not to die for. Decent but nothing special. I had... More

Vado Azzurro is really a treasure and you have to experience the whole thing (and maybe multiple times) to truly appreciate all the elements. Repeated visits give you an opportunity to meet the wide range of family members that collectively operate the property, enjoy a great menu with some of my favorite desserts, and ultimately become part of the extended...

Pleasant location for family or business dinner. I loved my Salmone alla Stromboli ($23.95). The waiter was perfectly attentive. The food was very fresh and tasty. The restaurant had a nice vibe that made you want to hang out and enjoy more Italian food and drink.

I visit Mountain View regularly from France & I have been to this restaurant at least 6 times in the last two years, But what has happened? The waiters seem the same - just dead. The exuberant lady who managed here is gone, never mind the lovely old granny who always came to acknowledge her customers. And the brother who... More

Group lunch (17 attendees). Wait staff was efficient and entrees were delivered promptly. I had the veal and it was overcooked IMHO. The sauce was good and that helped, but I did not finish it. Dessert was exceptional. Cappuccino was good. There's a lot of competition on Castro Street. This is good to average Italian food. The owner is great.... More

Unfortunately, can not say anything nice about this place. Saturday night, dinner for six, just friends. The noise was unbelievable! My throat was raw from shouting. The service terrible, they don't even know, that first they have to take order from ladies! Then we were sitting in front of dirty plates, I had to ask passing waiter to pick them... More

Wanted a nice meal on a Saturday night and was very very pleased. The host seated us immediately and Geoffrey was very attentive. The 2012 Guglielmo Pinot was tasty. Was not overwhelmed with the buffalo mozzarella salad but the Lamb Chops and Veal Scallopini was outstanding. A nice full portion and the food seemed to melt in your mouth. Fabulous!!!... More

Expensive for the quality of food and service. The pasta was very average: can get much better food at places which cost far less than this. The service was poor too, even though the place was not that busy since we went on a weekday. We were celebrating a birthday, so they provided a dessert with a candle and all... More

a great find. A bit pricey, but normal for Castro street. Menu has some really nice selections, and everything tasted crisp, fresh, and of highest quality. Attentive service, nicely decorated. Overall very satisfies and will return to try more items!

Hadn't been to Vaso Azzura Ristorante in some time. After an outing with friends they suggested going there for dinner as it is a favorite of theirs. It was a good decision as we had forgotten how good it is. The ambiance is very pleasant with a color scheme reminiscent of Italy, but as with so many restaurants has a... More
